Belgian police completed raids throughout the Brussels’ migrant district of Molenbeek Thursday evening, detaining one more person in the city in connection to the Paris attacks, local television reported.
BRUSSELS (Sputnik) — According to the RTL channel, police had searched the house of a suspect, who allegedly intended to join militants in the Syrian war, but was detained in Bulgaria. According to the media, the suspect was detained again by the Belgian police on Thursday.
Earlier in the day, Belgian police detained nine people during a series of home raids across Brussels. The raids were conducted in connection with the investigation into a suicide bomber who blew himself up during the Paris attacks last Friday.
On November 13, a series of coordinated attacks at various locations in Paris left 129 dead and over 300 injured.
Following the attacks, Belgian police have carried out a series of anti-terrorist operations detaining a number of people in Molenbeek, suspected of links to the Paris attacks and subsequently releasing most of them.
